Although I don't have the AC/DC disc,...... I own, and have "compared" many other original- v/s- remastered cds.
Generally, the original cd's have more hiss, noise etc......BUT...are true to the original mix.
The remaster's sound "better" most of the time....BUT.....often,..the original mix has been "tampered" with, even re-mixed....(something I don't personally believe in, having heard these songs for so many years).
So I KEEP the old cds too.

Nogoodboyo,

Your name sounds Welsh, so I must add The Manic Street Preachers to my list (Generation Terrorists is still my favourite album). Anyone else into the Manics?

Hey expat -- yeah I'm welsh -- from Newport. Used to see the MSP's play at Seiko's (now TJ's) when they were 16 yr olds. Only used to cover old punk stuff then but they were great.

This disc sounds excellent. It claims to be Digitally Remastered. I will say, to hear the intro to "Renegade" with a real sub & speakers is unbeleivable. Most systems just "baff" out - if you know what I mean.

In reply to:

I would highly recommend "The Fragile".




I second that. The Fragile is awesome. It hasn't left the changer in my car since I bought it when it first came out 5 years ago or so (except when I bring it inside to listen to it , of course). I'm anxiously awaiting the next release this spring.

good to see some more Nails fans here.. Fragile is also one of my fav Nails album. Also should try the DTS version of the "And All That Could Have Been" DVD.
And how about the Downward Spiral SACD?

Neverhappy your right. Dream Theater is excellent. I saw Mike Portnoy at a drum fest. Unbelievable. Thier albums are something else to keep time with.

I have em both, except I did the DVD-A for TDS. The little bit I heard of the demo disc that you get with the SACD version didn't excite me, plus I didn't have a DVD-A yet so wanted to try one out.

I can't believe no other Canadian boys have mentioned....

The Tragically Hip

I'll admit, their early albums aren't sonically great (but they rock!!), but post-Road Apples, the quality is awesome. Deep, deep bass on every track.
